Bee-eater in the rain!!

Got the chance of a trip to see the Bee-eater today (thanks Col), when we arrived the magnificent bird was sat in a tree at the road side giving outstanding views in the drizzle. The bird only moved when feeding on a diet of wasps which it expertly caught and devoured, eating at least 10 in the time we were there.........definitely won't be going hungry. We then tried for the Little Bunting at Houghton-le-Spring but no luck and the heavy rain stopped play. On the way home we managed to spot about 40 Waxwing at Holy Trinity Rosehill school within 2 minutes of my home...........looks like a big movement of these into the country.
